Citizen Enforcement Secures Stream Restoration, Reef Protection on Kaua‘i

Earthjustice

HONOLULU - On Thursday, August 18, 2016, the federal district court in Honolulu brought to a close a Clean Water Act consent decree that required former Kaua‘i developer and O‘ahu auto dealer James Pflueger to stabilize and restore property at Pīla‘a on Kaua‘i’s north shore that Pflueger previously owned. Pflueger’s unauthorized construction activities at Pīla‘a had triggered a massive mudslide in November 2001, smothering the reef and ruining a favorite spot for diving, subsistence fishing and gathering of limu, swimming and other subsistence and recreational activities.
